ACCPAC 5.1 Printer Character Limitation

ACCPAC 5.1 Printer Character Limitation

ACCPAC 5.1 Printer Character Limitation

I'm looking to see what the Printer character limitations is for ACCPAC 5.1.  If any happens to know where I can find this on ACCPACs site, that would be good.  I need it in black and white.  We are having a problem with a shared printer.  We think the share name is too long, but I need to know 5.1's Character limitations before talking with customer.  Can anyone help?

RE: ACCPAC 5.1 Printer Character Limitation

The customer is getting "invalid printer specified"

RE: ACCPAC 5.1 Printer Character Limitation

I don't know the exact number, but it's happened to me dozens of times when the share name is something like "HP 4000-J11 on \\middle-earth\hobbitserver".  Make it "HP4000" and you'll be fine.
